    Posted: 17 September 2011 at 9:37am
Well I checked the box last sunday but trophied both classes. Raced two classes and was exhausted. Came off start finish jump last race of the day 40+ class, hit wrong and right wrist rolled and throttle went wide open. According to a freind was a real you tube moment, results, broken left side #5 rib, bruised left side rib cartledge, broken left clavical, and overall general soreness. 3 days in hospital, still can't stand with all the pain, but have been on this parade before, 4-6 weeks of pain.

Selling dirt bikes, I am done racing, will do by proxy with grandson.

I trophied 1st in Vet C, and 3rd ib 40+ so went out a winner.

Breaking your #5 left side rib is an awfully odd bucket list thing but its your bucket list.

If we ever reenact together again, at your current pace, I'll need to drag you around on a caisson.

Sounds like you left the world of bike racing with a bang! Best way to do it in my opinion.

Just out of curiosity, just how old are you?

Daughter and son-in-law were there but had to leave before the crash. She took some stills and vid (of practice and 1st motos). We took some pics of the shoulder and down, pretty yellow bruising and some dark spots here and there. You can see lump of clavical.
Hopefully later today will try and get vids posted, and some stills.

My only concern is that injury is healed snough for 1st weekend in November start of adult hockey league, lets see how much more damage I can inflict on myself.

Some earlier pics.
